RTB House launches new AI-based product to increase brand awareness and user engagement

Posted by | Press releases | No Comments

 

RTB House – a global company that provides state-of-the-art marketing technologies has employed Deep Learning AI and first party data to create Streaming Video Ads – a brand-new solution aimed at targeting users in the upper stages of the sales funnel. These effective, brand-focused and dynamically-created video ads will offer users a viewing experience based on data-driven personalization enhanced with unique contextual elements and highly personalized storytelling.

Video is a key component of branding exercises, helping to focus marketing messages, improve customer interaction, and support a consistent and captivating brand image. According to a recent study by Wyzowl, when asked how they’d most like to learn about a product or service, two-thirds of people (66%) said they’d prefer to watch a short video. An additional 84% reported that they’ve been convinced to buy a product or service by watching a brand’s video.

To increase impact, RTB House Streaming Video Ads are constantly updated to allow advertisers to execute outstanding, unique and consistent brand strategies. Based on a branding video and powered by RTB House’s state-of-the-art Deep Learning recommendations, Streaming Video Ads are tailored to user preferences in order to present the brand in an engaging and appealing way.

According to RTB House clients, video is particularly effective at targeting users in the upper stages of the sales funnel. To determine which users are located in those stages our Deep Learning algorithms analyze thousands of data points. Based on these advanced calculations, Streaming Video Ads are displayed to an audience which may include users who were previously not engaged with the brand. “Creating a lasting connection with consumers requires a deep understanding of user behaviours. Each journey is unique because every customer is different, with their own set of personal circumstances, needs, preferences, and behaviours. That is why our highly personalized Streaming Video Ads are an effective solution for any digital marketing strategy that embraces a user-centric approach,”  says Łukasz Abgarowicz, Head of New Products at RTB House.

Thanks to RTB House’s partnership with all major inventory partners, Streaming Video Ads are available in all popular video formats for various types of devices. To ensure ads are presented in the desired and brand-safe contexts, placements are analyzed by our proprietary contextual targeting and Brand Safety mechanisms, which use natural language processing to analyze site context for every single impression delivered. To ensure consistent communication, Streaming Video Ads may also be bundled with other ad formats offered by RTB House, including Social Banners, Dynamic Display Banners, Snippet Ads, in-app campaigns, and more.

All Streaming Video Ad formats offer KPIs that measure the video’s branding impact. RTB House’s advanced analytics track a user’s interaction with the brand and deliver valuable insights that allow marketers to tailor their strategies and create an optimal user journey.

Supercharge Promotional Campaigns with Retargeting

Posted by | Press releases | No Comments

Promo periods can push significant boosts in e-commerce sales. Offering discounts is a key way to accelerate growth, and retargeting should be an important part of the strategy.

Among promo periods, Black Friday (November 29th, 2019) is a stand-out. Depending on the vertical and type of activities conducted within e-commerce, sales that day might grow as much as 5 times compared to a regular day at the beginning of the month. For markets in Europe and, North America and South America, it’s followed by Cyber Monday (December 2nd, 2019), so many marketers combine these two days in order to extend the sales period. For Asian markets, Single’s Day (11th November 2019) is another opportunity to boost sales – we see a similar increase on this day on Black Friday in Europe. Whereas in Eastern Europe, many marketers trigger discounts before Christmas and New Year when people buy gifts for their relatives.

Some verticals can benefit from the promo period much more than others. Based on RTB House’s experience, the highest uplift is observed in electronics and housing products; followed by fashion, fragrances, and multi-category retailers. It should be noted that there are some verticals, travel for example, that doesn’t react to typical promo periods. In the case of travel, the reason being that travel’s seasonality is not consistent with seasonality for material goods (e.g., few people decide to buy their next summer vacation in November).

Remarkably, growth doesn’t seem to be very consistent within verticals. For example, while many Czechian fashion e-commerce brands see average sales increases of 2X in November, the fastest growing players have managed to boost revenue by 3.5x or even higher. When we looked into the data more closely, it turned out that in most of these cases, there were massive discounts given by the marketers.

A very good example of such a campaign was shown by one of our clients working in the premium personal products sector. The client had a big anniversary and wanted to attract attention to the brand by having a massive sale with discounts throughout their various departments. They also decided not to focus on just Black Friday, but to extend the sales to the end of the month (last year Black Friday took place on the 23rd of November, so there was a week to benefit from increased sales). The results exceeded even bravest expectations of the marketing team. November sales increased by 40% year-to-year despite a stagnant market, and emptied out their warehouses.

Results delivered by retargeting were even more astonishing. Conversion value for the client increased by 234% in November, compared to market growth of “only” 66%. Sales on Black Friday were more than 10 times higher than on the last day before the promo started. Obviously, it came with a cost: In order to widely inform the users about promotions, the company was required to reduce the return on ad spend by around 25%. All in all, every seventh conversion during the promotion week was assisted by retargeting.

Retargeting strategies

This year we expect even higher impact of Black Friday on sales than last year, primarily for two reasons: First, the November 29th is very near the end of the month, so most people are likely to have salaries hitting their bank accounts. Second, since Black Friday is closer to the Christmas holidays, many customers likely use the promo day as an opportunity to buy gifts for loved ones.

Clients often ask how to think about the retargeting campaign during this period and how much it’s required to invest for optimal returns. Based upon our analysis of last year’s results, we came up with 3 different retargeting strategies:

Go with the flow. This strategy is the most common for marketers working on mature competitive markets. It helps to grow sales by keeping a stable return on investment. In this case, marketers usually give some discounts to their customers, but try to still keep margins stable because the impact of discounts is offset by increased volume. Although this retargeting strategy sounds really simple, daily flexibility on goal delivery (ROAS/COS/CPA) is required for proper execution. Please see the attachment to understand why.

Grow above the market.We recommend a more expansive strategy for those clients who’d like to increase their market share and get noticed by the market during the promo day. This strategy might be risky as it imposes a pressure on margin and supply chain. We often see cases where e-commerce management teams have to literally go to warehouses and help to prepare shipments. However, if positioned and executed properly, this remarketing strategy can be very rewarding for the marketer. Like the example before, it’s possible to grow as much as 2, even 3 times higher than the market. The most common question is how high the investment into retargeting should be. In order to answer it, we prepared benchmarks from last year’s promo periods to give an idea of earnings possibilities and what the investment should be to support such retargeting activity.

Acquire new customers. A promo day is also the best moment to acquire new customers. There are many users that could wait for months or even seasons before making the first purchase. Converting them for the first time during the promo day might be a very good way of obtaining future loyal customers as a consequence. Some marketers manage to increase the share of conversions by the new shoppers even by 30%. In order to achieve this, we recommend to run volume campaigns with higher range than normally. Retargeting is a very good tool to support this activity. In the case of big online shops user base is large and it’s possible to create different retargeting scenarios by impacting recent visitors or those who used to be in the e-shop longer time ago. If new customer acquisition is the priority, we recommend to dedicate up to 20% of retargeting budget for re-engagement.

RTB House Launches New Dynamic Ad Banner Creatives Called Snippet Ads™

Posted by | Press releases | No Comments

Developed by new AI Marketing Lab and Creative Labs units, Snippet Ads are hyper-relevant ads that deliver 2.5x to 3x higher click-through rates vs. static banners.

RTB House, a global company that provides state-of-the-art marketing solutions for top brands worldwide, today announced the general availability of new highly effective, dynamic ad banner creatives called Snippet Ads. They were developed and tested by its AI Marketing Lab and Creatives Lab, separate units focused on leading innovation for martech solutions. The general idea behind Snippet Ads is to increase the efficiency of prospecting campaigns.

RTB House, known for its ad-buying engine that is 100 percent powered by deep learning AI, has recently expanded its offerings to provide broader marketing solutions across the many global regions it serves for clients such as Adidas, Sephora, Trivago and O2.

Snippet Ads provide many of the benefits of dynamic creative optimization (DCO) including personalized messaging at scale by combining creativity and data for maximum impact. Provided in the form of a short HTML code and available “off-the-shelf” in various designs tailored to specific customers’ sectors with the ability to customize and test different messages, they’ve been proven to deliver 2x to 3.5x higher click-through rates (CTR) vs. static banners in A/B tests.

Based on beta customer feedback, RTB House’s labs have designed Snippet Ads to tackle many of the challenges marketers currently face with online display campaigns that now account for half of total media ad spending worldwide in 2019, per eMarketer.

“Those core challenges for marketers include a lack of personalization and differentiation that can cause banner fatigue, decreased user engagement and the fact that creatives with single, static offers often miss the mark with consumers,” said Gary Burtka, VP of U.S. operations at RTB House. “The future of marketing is personalized creative that’s hyper-relevant and dynamic, even for users that have not previously been to a website.”

Snippet Ads are especially effective at reaching new buyers, and RTB House’s deep learning algorithms power the personalization engine based on online users’ behaviors or fast insights through examination of page context (URL) and content in the main domain or subdomains.

“With the combination of deep learning and RTB House’s proprietary creative development process, we are confident that our new DCO solution is a game-changer,” said Burtka.

Prior to today’s launch, RTB House’s labs tested Snippet Ads across multiple use-cases including airlines, automotive and electronics manufacturers, classifieds, fashion brands, and online travel agency reservation platforms. Participating beta customers sought to avoid generic banner templates that deliver little branding impact and in some instances can affect brand perception negatively.

One beta customer was a major, worldwide automotive company. For the customer, RTB House conducted A/B tests to compare Snippet Ads versus the customer’s traditional static banners. The tests were run via two sections of two of the company’s websites. The initial test was for a five-day campaign period, while the second was a typical one-day campaign.

Due to the well-designed advertising strategy and the high quality of proposed banners, users on both sites that interacted with the Snippet Ads were more willing to click through specific offers which led to better performance results overall. More specifically, the CTR for Snippet Ads was almost 3.5 times better than the CTR for traditional static banners.

Snippet Ads can be used in a variety of ways by clients who have direct deals with publishers, advertisers or agencies buying ad inventory using DSPs and AdServers. Instead, RTB House is supplying its new creative display solutions and allowing clients to use them to drive the best possible results for their campaigns.
